Global & Swiss Investment Frauds Cases on Rising, what & why?

Ponzi schemes and investment scams are on the rise. According to a securities fraud attorney, low-interest rates have caused investors to seek out riskier investments. 

You can’t discuss anything these days without mentioning COVID-19. The pandemic has impacted many aspects of our lives, including our finances.  In the days following the initial news of the pandemic, global stock markets crashed only to quickly soar to record highs a year later. These volatile moves scare even the most seasoned investors. Most investors learn to deal with these fluctuations, but there is a small subset of investors that shun the stock market in favor of complex non-traded securities. These investments can range from private LLCs, business development companies, private equity companies, non-traded REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts), and even cryptocurrencies.Investments that are not traded on the stock market are not illegal to sell.

A recent, nearly $2 billion Ponzi scheme exposes the flaws in the system.  In February 2021, the  U.S. Justice Department announced the arrests of the owners and principals of GPB Capital. “By paying investors from an undisclosed and improper source such as investor capital, the defendants repeatedly misled investors about the health and performance of their investments” 

In a Ponzi scheme, fraudsters use money from new investors to pay existing investors. What appears to be a return on your investment is actually money from other investors who have been swindled. Look out for these hallmarks of a Ponzi scheme:

 

·         Guaranteed High Investment Returns. Promises of high investment returns – often accompanied by a guarantee of little or no risk – is a classic sign of a Ponzi scheme. Every investment has risk, and the potential for high returns usually comes with high risk. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

·         Unlicensed and Unregistered Sellers. Most Ponzi schemes involve individuals or firms that are not licensed or registered. You should verify whether a seller is currently registered or licensed using the services of Swiss Security Solutions LLC.

·         Overly Consistent Returns. Investment values tend to fluctuate over time. Be skeptical of an investment that generates steady positive returns regardless of market conditions.
